Richard Wilson is the president and publications editor of the New York State Covered Bridge Society. Every year since 1970, he and his wife have led tours along covered bridge routes in New York, New England and beyond. New York State's Covered Bridges explores the old timbered spans that crossed New York waters. The state at one time had more than two hundred and fifty such bridges; today, only twenty-four original covered bridges remain, plus some replicas. Vintage postcards, many of which are extremely rare, bring back into view the oldest ones, beginning with the first built in 1807, and ending with those of the mid-1900s.
